Parcells earns coveted RAMP designation for school counseling program - 1 of only 4 in Michigan.
Parcells Middle School will receive the Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) designation during a special ceremony at the American School Counselor Association's annual conference! The RAMP designation, awarded to schools that align with the criteria set in the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. Jill Cook, ASCA assistant director and RAMP coordinator, said this year's recipients are to be commended for their dedication to serving all students and demonstrating how effective school counseling programs can make a difference in students' lives.
"This is awarded to schools that align with the criteria set forth in the ASCA National Model, recognizing schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data driven, school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment," stated Parcells Principal Dan Hartley. "Parcells Middle School joins an elite group of Michigan schools. As of December 2015, only 3 schools in the state of Michigan had earned this designation. Sincere congratulations are extended to Carla Palffy, Jenny Sherman, and Kim Radant for all their hard work!"
Grosse Pointe middle school counselors secured a grant from the Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Education, and Parcells Counselors, Mrs. Palffy and Mrs. Sherman spent the past three years working to facilitate the realignment to the national model.
